Great story and great pic, Mac! Moab is such a photogenic area, but never more so than when a storm is threatening. Some day you'll have to share more details of that motorcycle journey with us. Sounds like a wonderful experience!!

I keep coming back. Makes me want to hop on my (mountain) bike and cruise around! I'm not bold enough for a motorcycle, but do like my mountain bike. Love it, Mac!

I need to get to this Park. It is simply amazing! Besides Arches, what else can one do around the Moab area?

There's a ton of stuff to do around Moab, Travel Luver. There's also scenic Canyonlands National Park nearby, well worth exploring. Off-road biking (bicycle, not motorcycle) is extremely popular. Hiking in the cooler seasons. Whitewater rafting is excellent in the summer. And you're less than a day's drive from your next Utah destination, such as Bryce, Zion, or Monument Valley. One of my favorite spots in the US!

After the story about the arch opening doubling in size, I'm not sure I'd be too comfortable experiencing it "up close". Very beautiful, though, from a these distances.

Good thing you weren't standing under there in 1940!

Thank you for the great photos! I've taken the Interstate many times and it is indeed very scenic.The weather can change rapidly so your precautions people should take note of. Also make sure your car is in tip top shape. The Rockies are a tough climb and I've personally had a transmission go out on me on the journey.

Hi Samantha, Someone actually went through big expense and effort to create that. Do you know what the columns were made of? It's always fun to come across a little gem like this on trips -- which I hope we can resume soon.
